### Description

Which One Doesn't Belong? are open-ended questions/number talks that will encourage even your most reluctant students to **analyze problems and persevere in solving them, reason abstractly and quantitatively, engage in deep mathematical thinking while justifying conclusions, and communicate ideas to others**. Designed for Grades 1-2, there are plenty of opportunities to use these Number Sense Powerpoint slides in your unit or throughout the year.

Use this resource as **an opener, a ‘Do-Now’ in the morning, for homework, or in your math centers**. There is always more than one answer and I am always impressed when a child comes up with a way that I didn't even think of!

**2 colorful slides in a PowerPoint**that can be used for whole group instruction. Please note that you*cannot*edit these slides.**Matching B&W copies for individual use.**Available in both handwriting lines so you can use the ones that are best for your class.
